I got a new reflex red dot for the Blackhawk, it kinda makes it look like an ugly duckling. It's more for an AR, and is plenty big and heavy. It seems to be shooting well and holding aim point.
It has a BIG viewing area and is easy to get on point.
I was out today, cold 16* little wind lasered off 50 yards and set the target, a piece of printer paper. I was shooting off my tailgate over a bag, big fluffy gloves.
We also started to powder coat our hard cast gas checked 303 gr bullets., should be around 1250 fps. Here is what I came up with.

Thanks, 788

That's impressive shootin' D.

How's the recoil on those loads?
I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

It just dawned on me. Is that a different sight than you had before?

looks good to me.  Most of my handcannons have scopes or red dots.
